While sunglasses are the perfect accessory for any summer outfit, finding the right pair can definitely be a struggle.
Celebrity stylist Preston Konrad visited TODAY Wednesday to break down the best sunglasses for different face shapes and finally answer the question: "Do these look good on me?"
For someone with a square-shaped face like Natalie Morales, Konrad recommends cat-eye frames or ones with slightly straight lines to balance out any strong facial features.

If you're like Al Roker and have a round face, Konrad suggests wearing sunglasses with rectangular or angular frames as these will give an illusion of defined features. Konrad likes to call this "an instant cheekbone trick." Look for wayfarers or another frame style with a rectangular or slightly rounded bottom.

For someone with a heart-shaped face like Dylan Dryer, look for frames that widen the upper cheek or eye area, advised Konrad. This will balance out the narrow jaw and wider forehead that are characteristic of this shape. Konrad's picks are aviators or chunky frames with high angles.

All we can say is, lucky you! If you have an oval face, just about any pair of sunglasses will work. Konrad's only advice is to avoid an overwhelming style if you have strong features. Try anything from round frames to rectangular styles — the options are endless!
